Rubio blasts Obama-Clinton era as ‘disaster for America’: Benghazi, Russia and ‘everything in between’

Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday aimed a combined blast at President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton by simply stating the ugly, unavoidable truth about the Obama-Clinton legacy on the world.

“Today, our allies trust us less,” the Florida Republican said on “Face the Nation.” “Our enemies fear us less. And America has less influence in the world than it did four to six years ago.”

While much of the interview focused on Rubio’s relationship with former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, his one-time mentor and now likely competitor fo the GOP nomination,  his Obama-Clinton criticisms were key. Rubio is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. More than the other contenders for the Republican nomination – announced or potential – he has emphasized the foreign policy fault of the Obama administration.

On Sunday, he very much included the Democrat frontrunner in that criticism too.

“We cannot ignore she was the secretary of State during the first four years of the Obama presidency and has virtually no meaningful achievements to show for it,” he said.

“On the contrary, whether it’s the reset in Russia, or our response to Benghazi, or everything in between, the Obama foreign policy during the Clinton years especially, as secretary of state, have been a disaster for America,” he said.

Rubio announced the official start of his campaign on Monday, a day after Clinton made her long-expected announcement official.

If the interview with “Face the Nation” host Bob Schieffer is any indication, he’s going to keep going after her for a long time to come.
